    Hello,

    I just bought a Wii U 2 weeks ago and its of 5.3.2U. When I go to setup a Nintendo Link ID, it says "In order to use online services, a system update is required". If I click on this, is it going to update the Wii U to 5.5.0?

    Yes. If you want to use Homebrew, don't update or do anything that will prompt an update.

    spoof to 5.5.0 (also use tubehax and use nnu-patcher, not sure if it's necessary) and you'll be able to link NNID
    just done it myself couple of days ago and still able to use loadiine
